AbsorbaSound can be used in place of a cement board or uncoupling mat.
AbsorbaSound is a sound barrier that will help to reduce the transfer of noise between levels, in either direction.
AbsorbaSound is designed to be installed under your floor covering. We cannot attest to the effectiveness when used under an area rug.
AbsorbaSound is suitable for use under ceramic tile. We would feel confident in the use of our product in the application described, however we would recommend getting approval from the manufacturer of the uncoupling membrane as well.
AbsorbaSound comes in various thicknesses. The 2mm thick product, 200 square foot roll will weigh approximately 75lbs. Other thicknesses are listed on our spec sheet which can be viewed on the AbsorbaSound product page.
AbsorbaSound is not currently approved for use under turf products, as we have no testing data to determine suitability.
The difference between QuietWalk and QuietWalk Plus is the attached film. QuietWalk Plus has a specialized film designed to accept nails and adhesives so it works with floating, nail-down, and glue-down installation methods of laminate and wood floors. QuietWalk is approved for floating wood and laminate only.
QuietWalk is not approved for use with luxury vinyl products. We recommend QuietWalk Luxury Vinyl for this application.
That is not an intended application, but there should be no issue to use QuietWalk under an area rug.
QuietWalk has only been tested and approved for use over a substrate, below a floating laminate or wood floor. We have not tested it for use between layers of plywood and cannot speak to the suitability.
QuietWalk is approved for a concrete subfloor under laminate flooring and has an attached vapor barrier. You shouldn’t need an additional vapor barrier unless the moisture vapor emissions of your slab exceed 5lbs/1000sf/24hrs.
